Elder abuse can be defined as a single, or repeated act, or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust which causes harm or distress to an older person. Elder abuse can take various forms such as physical, psychological or emotional, sexual and financial abuse. It can also be the result of intentional or unintentional neglect. Maria Berry believes abuse of older people in rural and remote areas of Australia is a neglected and growing health issue. Too often rural and remote communities are ignored or considered as all being alike. She will share her story and the work she is doing. Maria has a background in Nursing with career preference of working with older people in both community and residential care. She has been volunteering as a Health Consumer Representative for 6yrs to improve care and treatment of Older People in our Health Services and Community. She has been on Community Advisory Committees at Albury/Wodonga Health, Department of Health Victoria, and participated in projects with the National Ageing Research Institute; Victorian Care of Older People Clinical Network, Elder Abuse Australia/Stop Elder Abuse as well as presenting at numerous forums and conferences. Elder Abuse is CWA Victoria’s Social Issue for 2018.
